What art is, is an age old sticky question. This is my understanding from my personal viewpoint and how I got there.
I have a pot in the studio which gives some wonderful explanations of what art is.
The landscape and how it is an intrinsic part of the human psyche. The amazing healing qualities of feeling the earth beneath our feet. We have been outside in it and under the blue sky for long time.
The real reason I paint and how it all really kicked off.
Since childhood I have felt the power and influence of the world around me. I may only have started A Painting A Day in 2017 but it has been going on all my life.
The feeling is an odd mixture of resignation, knowing everything and nothing, giving in to it, absolute passion and drive, aching for the truth and realising that you can see the universe being created every second and that you are a part of it.
Many people have said ´You have an extraordinary talent but we are not sure what to do with it´. I didn’t know either.
